Leather Breastplates

If something light and effective is what you need in your armour, then you may wish to consider one of the leather breastplates that you will find here at Dark Knight Armoury. Leather breastplates, like their historical counterparts, are the perfect way to provide some solid protection not only to your front but also to parts of your sides. Breastplates are among some of the oldest pieces of armor known, having been worn throughout the Middle Ages and well before, as even the Greeks wore breastplates of their own. Some of our breastplates echo the style of these historical pieces, being modeled directly after their medieval counterparts, while others possess a more distinctive and fanciful look, resulting in leather breastplates that feature a wide assortment of styles that are both historical and fantasy based. All of our leather breastplates are crafted in high quality leather, although the weight of the leather varies from piece to piece. Some are crafted from lower weight leather, which is thinner and lighter, making it perfect for use as a costume piece, LARP armor, or theatrical armor, while others are crafted from heavier weight leather, like 13-15 oz leather, which is thicker and makes for suitable armor when used in SCA events or reenactments. Some of our pieces are even custom-made to your measurements, making them a well fitted piece of armor that any warrior could appreciate! Leather breastplates work wonderfully on their own, or can be paired with padded gambesons or chainmail hauberks and shirts for added protection. Dark Knight Armoury is the place to be when it comes to picking up a great leather breastplate, which will provide you with solid protection on the battlefield and a great look off the battlefield.
